Complaint proceedings have been opened in Switzerland against the world football federation (FIFA) for possible unfair climate promises.

The Swiss Fairness Commission – a self-regulatory body of the communications industry – is investigating whether the association marketed the World Cup in Qatar as too environmentally friendly.

Confirming a newspaper report on Sunday, Marc Schwenninger, managing director of the Foundation for Fairness in Commercial Communication said such a case is pending with the commission.

Schwenninger declined to give any further details about the investigation which might take months, according to experts.
